Hey guys,

I really really like the toxic version of sapphire but i dont know if there will be available any time soon...Should i wait for it or should i go with the vapor-x??Is there any real difference?
I also want to ask you about the psu... Is my psu enough for one of those cards(http://www.amazon.com/OCZ-80PLUS-Bronze-Performance-com...) ?

Thanks in advance :)

The Toxic will net you a few extra FPS due to the higher factory overclock, but the Vapor X might run a tiny bit quieter (not much).

If you're set on the Toxic and are willing to wait, then you won't be disappointed, but if performance is your only concern, the Vapor X won't be significantly slower.

And just an aside, your PSU is just meeting the rec for these card. I'm of the belief that Sapphire's rec is totally exaggerated, but that might be something to keep in mind.

I'm in the same dilemma my friend. I want the toxic but there hasn't been any stock for weeks on neither amazon nor newegg, so i really want to know if there's really a big difference performancewise...

I really don't mind much about the noise (as long as it isn't extremely loud), though. I could assume that the toxic edition might be 10% faster tops over the Vapor-X, but again, don't take my word for it.

Hope someone can helps us in this matter.
